Yes you do. If you think it's awful by page ten, chances are that it's going to be awful for the next 100 pages, and the next, and the next, and so on. A book may be boring, sure, and that's not really a reason to quit unless it's really monotonous, because chances are that it's going to be monotonous for the rest of it.

I actually haven't ever, and I read a shitton, ever read a book farther than 10 pages, said it's awful, and kept reading.

By page ten I find almost all books are 'awful', or at least 'bad', because by page 10 nothing happens. It's boring. Monotonous.

But, you see, I wouldn't call them 'awful' or 'bad' or 'boring' or 'monotonous', because I haven't had a taste in the action and adventure that is sure to await in the later chapters. Some things pick up slowly. Habits, games, books. It's the same with webcomics, especially considering a lot of them essentially ARE books with pictures, and in some cases, animations.

Which is why I love Homestuck. It isn't just text, nor is it just pictures. It has animations. It's a 6000+ page adventure so grand that is has not only teeshirts or posters, but even MUSIC. How many webcomics can claim they have 15+ soundtracks?

I can see that you may not like it, because you can think whatever you want.
I just can't see HOW.

Most albums are fairly cheap. The most expensive one is album 5 I think, and it has like, 70 songs, so.. (I think it's like, 14 dollars?)

A lot of them go for plot-related prices, $4.13, $6.12, and album 8 is $10.25 with 42 songs. It really isn't expensive, especially considering the amount of songs you get and the quality of said songs. Hell, most 'popular' singers' albums go for like 20 a piece for only 5-10 songs.

Zero dollars, more or less. You can listen to all of them for free in HS's music page, but you gotta pay a bit to download them (10 bucks for the most expensive album so far).


EDIT: Aw, ninja'd.

Also bonus songs man
And other bonuses
Don't forget the bonus or otherwise I won't be giving you your 500 dollar bonus for all the hard work you've done this month.


EDIT:
Yeah nevermind what I said about not liking the other songs. They're growing on me.

And as has been said, anyone who judges it based on the first 100 pages or so is wrong. Not just being "NO YOU'RE WRONG" either, the entire thing changes so drastically that it isn't even comparable.

Seriously, it's like you're reading an entirely different series.

Either that or he just genuinely didn't like it.

I don't like reading picture books. I don't want to be told what the character looks like. In my head, it's the author subconsciously picking a fight with me, saying that my perception of what I get from a story is wrong because he is the author. Because he is the author, I can never win this fight (It is not I who rights the story), and so I get angry.

I think that not knowing what something looks like in a book is infuriating. If you want me to really see that something is beautiful, show it to me. If you want to describe the sad, sad look on someones face as they die, I want to see it, because I don't know what it looks like. Making pictures adds a level of depth that you don't have to make yourself. You shouldn't have to imagine the entire book just to get a good feel from it. If the author wants you to write your own book then why is he writing you one?

Oh for god's sake can we stop talking about this already
It was clear before you even started that nobody was going to win this argument

Saying that comics are stupid because they contain pictures is ludicrous
Saying that books are stupid because they contain no pictures is ludicrous
Now either talk about homestuck or don't say anything at all

That's what I said earlier but apparently everyone decided to ♥♥♥♥ that sentiment and keep arguing.
